2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. $1.67 in mix-a-6 at Binnyís, Dec 2011. Chocolate and coffee3 roast nose. Pillowy brown head that lingers for quite a while. Solid black color. Manages to keep a low carbonation level suited for this style. But the first sip is very harsh and astringent. Let it sit to answer some Tweets, come back to find itís mellowed a little, but still has a bitter coffee character. I just canít get behind it. Properly bitter to mark the Blackhawks season ending tonight, I guess.

Pours black with hints of red around the sides of the glass where the light does penetrate. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and light coffee. Flavor of light coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and is a little watery in the finish.
